Apple isn't taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5s – at least not anywhere local to anyone at iMore – but today sees the process getting underway in China. And by all accounts, it seems to be going pretty well. As MacRumors points out, however limited supplies might be, multiple sell outs are being seen already:
If you've had your eyes on a new iPod touch, iPod nano, or iPod shuffle, but prefer doing your pre-ordering through Amazon than Apple, you're in luck -- Amazon has just put their new iPod pre-order page live!
The iPhone 5 went on pre-order early this morning and if you are looking to grab one direct from Apple, it is already too late. The delivery date for every model of the iPhone 5 be it Black or White, 16GB, 32GB or 64GB is now as two weeks in the United States. Previously if you pre-ordered the iPhone 5 delivery was guaranteed for Friday September 21.
The iPhone 4S is now available for pre-order in 22 additional countries, including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Shipping times are listed at 1-2 weeks.
In a few hours, at 12:01am PDT / 3:01am EDT, iPhone 4S pre-orders will begin. So... are you pre-ordering? Or if you're reading this later, did you pre-order? If so, let us know what you're getting (or what you got!) Black or white? 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB? GSM/AT&T or Verizon or Sprint CDMA?
Any problems with the ordering process? Did you get a confirmation? What's the shipping date? So. Many. Questions!
Sprint has started allowing customers to pre-order the 8GB iPhone 4 in either black or white flavors for $99.99. Sprint will also begin pre-orders for the new iPhone 4S starting tomorrow, likely at 12:01am PDT.
According to the description on Sprint's website, pre-orders will be available "while supplies last" and will ship to customers by the 14th or 15th of October. Customers planning to pre-order may want to head over to their website to secure their order in case supplies run dry.
Apple has put our a press release reminding existing Verizon customers that they can pre-order the Verizon iPhone starting tomorrow, February 3, at 3am:
Due to high demand, customer orders will be fulfilled on a first come, first served basis.
Beginning on Wednesday, February 9, all qualified customers will be able to order an iPhone 4 on Verizon through the Apple Store (www.apple.com) for delivery or reserve for in-store pick up beginning February 10.
Beginning at 7 a.m. local time on Thursday, February 10, iPhone 4 on Verizon will be available to all qualified customers at Apple’s retail stores. iPhone 4 will also be available at more than 2,000 Verizon Wireless Communication Stores nationwide.
So did you pre-order or reserve an iPhone 4 today? Are you going to? Sure, it looks like AT&T can't handle the onslaught of would-be iPhone 4 pre-order and reservations that came crashing down on them, and their servers, this morning. And the Apple Online Store has gone up and down so much it may need a gyro soon. But we have to hope at least some of you have gotten your order confirmations and are the proud soon-to-be owners of a new iPhone 4? (Black, of course, since White ain't coming until later this summer).
